NORCROSS - Atlanta area police say a man appears to have died of natural causes while unloading marijuana from a van.

Gwinnett County police said in a statement that officers on Monday responded to a call of a man slumped near a van and a tractor trailer.

Officers found 31-year-old Johnny Taylor of Bridgeport, Connecticut, dead and kneeling on the ground with his head on the step of the van's side door. Police say his body showed no signs of trauma and that it appears he died of natural causes.

Police say that once Taylor's body was removed, officers found bags of marijuana inside a box in the van and saw similar boxes in the truck.

Officers got a warrant and seized several hundred pounds of marijuana with a street value of about $12 million.
